Belinda Effah is one of the most exciting new faces in Nollywood at the moment. Some will already be familiar with her, from the soap opera, Tales of Eve. She is gradually making her way into Nollywood, and her performances in her recent movies, such as Kokomma, and Udeme Mmi have been very impressive.
It will be clear to anyone, who watches any of her movies, that Nollywood is witnessing the debut of a significant talent. Her performances are fluid and compelling, and she has the ability to draw viewers deep into her characters. It is therefore no surprise that Nollywood producers are clamouring to work with her.
She has been nominated for the Most Promising Act award at the 2012 Best of Nollywood Awards, which takes place on November 11. It will not be a surprise to anyone if she goes home with the award on the day.
Belinda is from Cross River state, and she is a graduate of Genetics and Bio-Technology from the University of Calabar.
